It’s almost time to snap out of your weekend hibernation routine – if only for one unforgettable night.
That’s because the motionball Toronto Gala returns for the 15th year on Friday, February 5th, transforming the Liberty Grand into the ultimate party playground.
And you’ve obviously heard of the motionball gala: it’s the must-attend charity event of the year for Toronto young professionals (YPs) from all industries. It’s the type of event where you could bump into someone you haven’t seen since high school, a co-worker, a cousin, and a client all within five minutes.
It’s also the type of event where you’re pretty much guaranteed to have a good time (almost too good of a time – don’t book an early brunch).
Best of all, it’s for an amazing cause: the evening is in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation (not that we have to tell you that).
This year’s “a Night in the Woods” theme invites guests to become one with nature, complete with a dress code of “Whimsical Wilderness meets Black Tie.” At this year’s gala, trees represent the strength of Canadians living with an intellectual disability. Even better than the mysterious forest-themed décor, however, is the chance the event offers to interact directly with the inspirational athletes that the foundation benefits.
Solidifying the fact that it’s going to be a quality crowd, the evening is hosted by TSN’s Cabral “Cabbie” Richards and KiSS 92.5’s Devo Brown – and they’re bringing some of their high-energy friends along.
Party perks include complimentary drinks all night (naturally), live entertainment featuring 12 artists in 3 ballrooms, specialty cocktail bars, an always impressive silent auction with over 100 coveted items, the signature Summerhill candy bar, and a late night Pizzaville buffet.
Not to mention, there will be no shortage of personal and professional networking opportunities (so bring your ‘A’ game and your business cards).
Word of advice: get your tickets now because they will sell out and, sadly, there will be nothing we can do to help you. Early bird tickets are already sold out, but regular priced tickets are available for $150 (and include a $50 tax receipt).
Trust us when we tell you that this gala is definitely worth the price tag.
